Evacuation Information

Emergency Evacuation

Once the Governor gives an executive order for evacuation, Coast RTA becomes part of the Horry County Emergency Preparedness initiative and begins transporting residents from the designated zones to the local shelters.  Depending on the strength and speed of the approaching storm, evacuations could begin 24-72 hours prior to landfall.

General Evacuation Tips

During evacuation, all Coast RTA rides end at officially designated emergency shelters. Return trips will only stop at the hurricane shelter evacuation designated pickup points. When using Coast RTA for transportation to the local shelters, look for the temporary blue and white hurricane evacuation bus stop signs to designate the pick up location. This is a FREE service provided by Coast RTA as the transportation partner during emergency preparedness efforts.

For details on Coast RTA’s operations and service to these evacuation bus stops/pick up locations, please call Coast RTA’s Customer Service at (843) 488-0865.
